Once again today’s project has a couple of retiring products; the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder and 1/4″ Copper Trim. But I’ve also thrown in a little reminder about a returning product too. This wasn’t my original plan for today, but I’m very happy with my morning’s work.
Today I decided to showcase the retiring Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder. As you might expect it creates a corrugated feel, but being a 3D folder the ridges are very pronounced.
I started by lightly spritzing a piece of Garden Green Card with clean water using a Stampin’ Spritzer. Then I placed it into the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder and ran it forwards and backwards through my machine with just a single cutting pad on top. With that done I removed the damp card and set it aside to dry.
For my ‘Thank you” sentiment and raccoon image I turned to the Special Someone Stamp Set. Using Soft Suede ink I stamped the image and sentiment onto scraps of Thick Very Vanilla Card. I also stamped the raccoon in the bottom right corner on a layer of Very Vanilla Card. Then I stamped the raccoon on the front of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope too.
Taking the stamped card scraps over to my die-cutting machine I then cut them out using dies from the coordinating Special Day Dies. These dies were available for a short period at the beginning of the year but will be returning on June 3rd in the Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.
I was now ready to start putting my project together.
Using my Paper Trimmer I cut and scored some Thick Very Vanilla Card. Then I folded it along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder to create a card base.
Next I put two lines of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the back of the corrugated card piece. Then I used it to secure three pieces of retiring 1/4″ Copper Trim in the grooves. The adhesive did double duty as I then used it to fix the panel to the centre of my card front.
In the centre of the panel I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to mount the die-cut sentiment. Then more Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the bottom half of the raccoon. As I wanted him to overlap the corrugated panel I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) to fix the top half.
That just left the stamped Very Vanilla layer. Once I’d added that to the inside of the card with liquid glue I was done.
Interesting texture, shiny copper and a cute animal image, what’s not to love?
